2012 Lake Wobegon Trail Marathon:

  • START: 7:00 a.m. on May 12, 2012 at the Holdingford High School.
  • Runners will head west from the Holdingford High School for one mile and join the Lake Wobegon Trail ¾ mile north of the Holdingford Trail Facility.
  • Runners will run through the towns of Holdingford, Albany, Avon, and St. Joseph. The race finishes at the Trail Facility in St. Joseph.
  • Course Info:

  • The course is flat, fast, and picturesque.
  • Many people feel that the trail from Holdingford to St. Joseph is the prettiest portion of the Lake Wobegon Trail.
  • The trail is primarily rural except as it passes through the four small towns along the route.
  • In a post on the “A Prairie Home Companion” website, Garrison Keillor said this about the Lake Wobegon Trail: “I’ve biked the bike trail…and love the ordinary beauty of farmland and meadow and the towns along it.”
  • The course is certified (USATF #MN-08042-RR).

  • The Lake Wobegon Trail is a 10 foot wide asphalt bike trail on a former railroad track.
  • The trail is smooth and has no cant.
  • There is very little elevation change at any time along the entire length of the course.
  • You cannot get lost on this course. Runners join the trail after one mile and then simply follow the trail to the finish.
  • There is only one turn on the entire trail where the trail ‘T’s’ at about 11 ½ miles and runners go left at the ‘T’.
